Facts about Samba

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 765
  • Hair: Short
Samba should have been adopted long before now except she does HORRIBLE at adoption events. The sweet natured, easy going kitty in her foster home turns into "Samba Gozilla" at the adoption event, hissing at everyone -- other cats and people.

Maybe it's because she is so smart and figured out we wouldn't keep taking her and putting her in a cage for a few hours if she raised a ruckus. Well it worked but Samba still needs a forever home. She adorable and playful in her foster home.

In the 3rd photo she is looking for treats in the purse pocket (smart kitty).

Samba is a sweetheart with a beautiful coat of white, brown tabby and black tabby all blended together. She has a cute tabby dot right under her chin. She is adorable and friendly and gets along great with people and other cats which she enjoys in her home.

She loves to play and romp with the young kittens and she is definitely not timid of people so she won't run and hide when guest arrive.
Samba was born to a feral mom in someone's back yard, she brought them in when she was just 4 weeks old so she thinks people are her parents.

Samba has no bad habits (other than hating adoption events), uses litter box and scratches on her cat tree & cardboard scratcher. She is negative for FeLV/FIV, current on shots, dewormed, spayed and will be microchip when adopted

About Southern Counties Rescue (Mission Viejo, CA)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit cat rescue group (+ a few dogs). We rescue abandoned cats & kittens from the streets and high kill city animal shelters in Orange, Los Angeles, Imperial and San Diego counties.
We also help people who need to rehome their pets through our Community Foster Program in that we post the cats on our internet sites and accept applications for them. We also help the owner screen applicants and bring their cats to our adoption events but we cannot physically take them since we are foster based. We do not have a physical shelter, we foster in our homes, not in cages which is a more natural environment for cats.
Lastly, we help reduce the number of unwanted kittens with TNR (Trap-Netuer/spay-Release) by loaning traps and instructing others on how to TNR and by referring people to low cost S/N clinics.
